Thanks for the kind words folks!

It really means a lot to me to hear that.

Not being on Facebook means that a couple of forums and my blog are my only online presence/connection to the rest of the world. Living in a small rural village in Germany as an American with poor German language skills and not being part of a local gaming club means my hobby is a bit… isolated…. to say the least.

So thanks for helping with my motivation. Hopefully folks find my blog informative and entertaining to some degree. I know there are a lot of time sinks out there and any time folks spend on my blog is precious.

I refuse to do social media, so I appreciate your commitment to something I can read. That said, I live in a small rural town (that I'm not entirely sure speaks English some days) in the US and my own hobby time is also largely in my head or for my own enjoyment. Nothing wrong with that. At least you have Mrs. Gnome and some wonderful toys to play with! I'm always happy to follow along with your projects.

Adding the flying cloak gives him a great sense of motion!  Looks good.

Thanks! It was more challenging than I expected. I thought I could just pop the cloak on (Fireforge cloak I think) but I had to cut it to get it over the helmet. Then when I went to glue it I tried to take a short cut with superglue. A mistake. Then I thought it would be a simple greenstuff job to fix it but I just could not get the sculpt right. Then when I thought I had it I struggled to get the off-white to look the way I wanted. It took me much, much longer to get the figure to look like I wanted but I think I finally got it. I appreciate the kind words.

That’s a lot of effort!  Now you need another half a dozen of them! 😉

I suspect using Fireforge plastics will make the rest a good bit easier.

The knight looks great, and the cloak works really well!

I like the knight. He is probably a better representation of the White Cloaks than the TV series representations. I felt like they were more like hairdressers at an Avante Garde salon. Children of Vidal Sassoon.

I really hated how the Whitecloaks were portrayed in the overall disappointing TV series.

Children of Vidal Sassoon.

Children of Vidal “anti-fascist warrior-hairdresser” Sassoon isn't a bad lineage!
